Game 106: Pirates 3 Giants 1

It is late and I am tired, so let’s keep this to the point: Josh Harrison and Travis Snider both kept up their recent hot streaks with early home runs, and Francisco Liriano just absolutely dominated the Giants tonight after a little bit of a slow start. He struck out 11 Giants in his seven innings of work, with all 11 strikeouts coming after a first inning double, three hard-hit...

Pinch-hits from Snider, Harrison push Pirates over Rockies, 4-2

In a game of errors, fielding miscues and a baserunning mistake, the Pirates bench picked up the slack Friday night at PNC Park. Taking advantage of the Colorado Rockies bullpen, the Pirates scored two runs in the eighth inning to secure a 4-2 win. They committed three errors, missed two other outs on defense and ran through a stop sign on the bases. Neither of the Rockies’ two...

Travis Snider strikes out Joey Votto — Really

Travis Snider’s MLB pitching debut will probably be overshadowed by a controversial call at home plate (and Clayton Kershaw’s no-hitter will rightly get most of the national attention), but the Pirates outfielder struck out one of the best hitters in MLB Wednesday night. In the ninth inning of an eventual 11-4 loss to the Reds, Snider took the mound to give the bullpen a break...

Travis Snider was sporting a big black eye on Monday, a day after he was ejected for his role in the bench-clearing brawl between his Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers.

WATCH: Travis Snider takes ball to the jaw going for catch

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Travis Snider’s face does not catch popups nearly as well as his glove. During the fourth inning of Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, Snider attempted to make a sliding catch near the right-field foul line, only to have the fly ball just miss his glove and instead nail him right in the jaw. The play was initially ruled a foul ball...

Pirates outfielder Travis Snider falls victim to the routine ‘finger injury by sweet potato’

As MLB teams begin the process of reconvening for Spring Training, reports undoubtedly will surface regarding the bizarre kind of injuries major league ballplayers suffer at an alarming frequency, at least much more than their athlete counterparts in other professional sports leagues.

Snider’s Grand Slam Explodes Twitter, Or Does It?

I think one of the great things about the way we use technology to follow sports is the ability to take a step back and observe the way the masses react to memorable moments. In the case of Travis Snider’s grand slam in the sixth inning of the Pirates’ 5-4 win against the Cubs on Tuesday, my observation is that there was smoke coming off my Twitter feed in the moments following...
